About

What We Do

  • Food is donated by the community of Redbridge and beyond
  • Volunteers sort and pack the food into foodboxes. Each foodboxcontains enough food for 3 days
  • We partner with front-line care professionals, who identify people in crisis and give them a food voucher
  • On taking their food voucher to the foodbank centre, people receive a warm welcome, a hot drink and a foodbox
  • We put people in touch with agencies who can help resolve the underlying causes of the crisis
  • Redbridge foodbank also provides foodboxes to other charities and agencies for their clients with immediate needs

 

Foodbank provides short term emergency food to an individual or family in crisis while a long-term strategy is developed
